This is for the Winter Flash Off / Christmas Collection 2009. / collection/christmas2009.

This is REALLY LATE because my tablet decided to go and explode on me. Thanks to newgrounds for awarding me with a new wacom one though! in the meantime i borrowed one and got it in before the deadline wahey. This one's personal. I didn't have time to make the music for this one though.

This is my second flash with a full storyline and it's in colour so it took a lot longer than THE.LIFT. Appreciate any advice or comments, i'm still rusty at this.

And I can't get higher quality .gif files as an icon, help.

I liked it,


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

yes, but one thing...

you deserved a 10, but the ending was a bit rushed. you def captured how people just dont feel the same in these times. it's one of the most universal opinions out there in the USA. however, the part with the kids in the background and one choking the other, then out of no where, she plays music, but kids are still pretty much in same position... what was use of that? overall, i def gave this 5 and def favorited it.

that part was actually a personal thing that happened to me. just before christmas me and some friends went wandering in the streets with a pignose amplifier and just played some booming christmas choons in public to cheer people up and i think it worked... or maybe people just thought we were mental. just a weird little thing like that made a busful of people smile.

Loved it.

Nice theme. It seems that you experimented a little with different ways of conveying what your character was experiencing. The style and animation were good and the artwork was fine, except the characters looked very stiff. While the hands moved, the bodies almost never did. Doing little things like shifting the torso a tiny bit to either side as the hands threw things out of the door could help make the figure look more alive.

Thanks for the advice, that's a nice tip with the torso thing. I've honestly never drawn anyone from behind before it was so weird! i'm going to keep practising my animation, hopefully get something more fluid in the future.
